Forms of energy ; Mechanical energy; Conservation of energy; Energy transfers; Work; Friction, air drag Some important forms of energy: Kinetic energy K Gravitational potential energy U g Elastic or spring potential energy U s Thermal energy E th Chemical energy E chem Nuclear energy E nucl Total energy E= K + U g + U s + E th + E chem + E nucl +… 10 What’s energy? Forms of energy; Mechanical energy ; Conservation of energy; Energy transfers; Work; Friction, air drag A moving object or person like the skater has kinetic energy , defined as K=mv 2 /2 Where v is the velocity of the object and m is its mass . Changing the kinetic energy of an object means changing its speed. 11 i>Clicker Question Two marbles, one twice as heavy as the other, are dropped to the ground from the same height. Just before hitting the ground, the heavier marble has (neglect air drag) A. as much kinetic energy as the lighter one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
